Groundbreaking hardware/software rebirth of the classic Odyssey!
Creamware's Prodyssey ASB Synthesizer Emulator delivers the breakthrough synth sounds of the Odyssey in a digital sound module. The Odyssey vintage synth left an indelible mark on the pages of music history. Open up your CD collections and go to the section labeled "Early Music: 1972-1978". Now, pay attention: everything that reminds you of chemistry lab, everything that cuts, tapers, buzzes like a particle accelerator and freezes like a bucket of liquid nitrogen—that's the Odyssey. Anything that reminds you of a Moog, anything that scratches, fattens and hits, but can't possibly come out of a Minimoog because it was, well, just too simplistic—that's very probably also the Odyssey. If it sounds to you like robots or aliens are scratching at your door—Odyssey. But today you can't get it anymore, so Creamware built a modern software-driven hardware emulation for you and threw in a bunch of cool extras as well.
There are 12 Odysseys squeezed into the Prodyssey ASB's gleaming exterior. Each of these has two oscillators with sync, variable pulse width, and envelope control. LFO with sample and hold generator—of course, this isn't a sampler but a tricked-out sound mangler with that authentic Star Wars touch. Filters with the characteristics that made the Odyssey the synth of choice for every European soundsmith: slightly cutting but also electric, and if need be, those soft and sparkling chrome formica quantum tunneling sounds. Plus, Filter-FM. The two envelope generators are capable of going head to head with not only the VCA but also the oscillators. And, of course, the modulation capabilities that the typical chromatographs and slide rules of today's NASA Laboratories can't give you any more.

I own a PRO-12 ASB and a KlangBox Prodyssey, both by Creamware.The Prodyssey Klangbox for those who do not know is the knobless version of the ASB.The Prophet is great and so easy to use having on board dials etc.For me the use of knobs is Imperative to "get to the sound" and for this the ASB derivative is top notch. I cannot fault my other ASB for control and wish I had purchased the ASB version of the Klangbox rather than purchasing the knobless Prodyseey Klangbox which is a pain to edit.Editing the Prodyssey is something you will want to do. It's sounds are simply stunning and I have never had such a distinct range of sounds from a synth. I have been playing various synths for over 25 years. The sound is raw/powerful/analogue/warm/dirty. It really is the most diverse VA (or real analague) I have ever played. 12 note poly and they throw in a moog filter emulation as well! (the original Odysseys were said to have a moog filter!).Cracking!
